Now, I’m not saying that you should wake up and create a to-do list every single morning (but if you want that’s okay too, because I do lol). Continue reading “Morning Routine and Why You Need One”

Remove Crayon Off Walls: What Really Works?

Ry with crayon markings

I have an amazing almost two year-old daughter named Riley. Thanks to her, a wall right in plain sight of everyone that enters my house, has been boldly decorated with green and yellow crayon artwork.

Spouse in Boot Camp: Now What?!

I have to admit, I had no clue what military life had to offer before Louie joined in 2011. Once he left for basic training (boot camp), the journey began. He was able to call me for about 30 seconds to tell me that he had made it to Illinois (The Great Lakes Naval Training Center). After that phone call, I didn’t hear from him again.

The Waiting Struggle

Louie and I were together for eleven years before we decided to try for children. Now, I get it, eleven years is a pretty long time…BUT we met when I was sixteen so cut me some slack. The crazy part is that before Riley had a chance to even make an appearance in the world, people began asking when I was having another one. Excuse me!!!
